Cairns City House Rental Photos and Description

Luxurious Five Bedroom, Three Bathroom Timber Holiday House in the Treetops!

This spectacular Cairns City holiday house is absolutely amazing! If you are looking for the holiday of a lifetime, you have found your accommodation right here. Named 'Wanggulay Too Treetops', this is a four bedroom holiday house located just 7 kilometres west of Cairns airport and set amongst the treetops of a rainforest.

Our Asian inspired interior opens onto a large timber balcony with breathtaking views of the world heritage listed rainforest, which boasts tropical birds, kookaburras, Ulysses butterflies and the gently flowing Barron River below.

Included in your rate is our free E-Book, detailing the best things to see and do as experienced by our guests over the last 10 years.

Sitting on the hillside above the river, this luxurious Cairns City holiday home is filled with exotic oriental Balinese furniture, day bed on the balcony, polished hardwoods, elegant fabrics, handsome statues and lush tropical plants.

Your Cairns City accommodation, with its earth-colours and textures, features an inviting ambience into the main living area under a large timber cathedral ceiling. The spacious open-plan living area extends outside to a wide veranda high above the forest floor in the treetops. Bi-fold doors slide back, allowing the large outdoor area to become part of the living room. On hot days, with the doors closed, the integrated air-conditioning keeps this Cairns City holiday house cool. On the floor below is a smaller living area with a lounge, large screen television and veranda fully screened for the ultimate tropical living experience.

The master bedroom looks out through the dappled sunlight of the treetops with the river down below. Fine linen, polished timber floors - the attention to detail, decorative soaps in a Balinese tray, fragrant frangipanis floating in a bowl and a luxurious ensuite bathroom with a spa-bath all point to first class accommodation!

Hi

My name is Belinda. After building Wanggulay in 2003 we decided to completely upgrade our nearby home to Wanggulay standard and and now we are about to launch WanggulayToo Treetops. I have lived overseas for many years and Wanggulay is our spectacular home in Australia. I am a Nutritionist and lifestyle consultant and love food. I recently wrote the Cairns and Wanggulay Guide which contains a comprehensive food section detailing my favourite markets,restaurants and cafes. I have two daughters and they wrote the kids section in the Wanggulay guide too. The eBook copy of the guide is yours when you make an enquiry. I would love to show you our home, perhaps you have already seen its neighbour Wanggulay on Australian Lifestyle television or Queensland Weekender.

Bet purchased this house in 2009

We have lived all over Australia (19 locations) and overseas ( 4 countries) but the lure of the tropics and the rainforest outside Cirs was too great. We feel that nothing can compete with the natural beauty and experiences on offer in this unique pocket on our planet. We loved to travel and we have collected a lot of wonderful pieces that now have found their home in Wanggulay Too. Come meet Aladin our lamp from Asia, our marriage dolls, all four of them from Bali. We have interesting Art work form famous Australian artists and very pieces collected form markets around the world. All compliment the tropical environment of Cairns.

Have you ever been to a place where you feel that you are literally walking in the tropical treetops? Thanks to a a rare engineering feat matching frameless glass with fine, slim edge stainless steel balcony you can do just that at Wanggulay Too. Not more than 10 minutes walk or 2 minutes by car is one of the most beautiful creek and waterfalls on our planet. Known as Stoney creek it is a locals hidden favourite and little wonder that when we first swam under the waterfall for us it was paradise found, Come and experience that, you will be amazed and all this so very close to Cairns city and Palm Cove..

PERFECT PLACE TO RELAX IN THE CAIRNS RAINFOREST

  • 5 of 5
Wanggulay Too Treetops can best be described as ‘paradise nestled in the treetops’.

From the moment we entered this property we were captivated by the red oak timber features, soft lights, classy furnishings, stunning artwork, calming aromas and a large outdoor deck with open access to a fully equipped kitchen and funky bar.

The large timber deck was the perfect place to enjoy breakfast whilst listening to the peaceful sounds of the rain forest with the sun filtering through the treetops.

In the evening we enjoyed sunset drinks on the deck with no idea that later in the evening we were about to be treated to a wonderful display of ‘fireflies’ (lightening bugs) zipping about the treetops creating a spectacular light show. WOW that was memorable!

We recommend you take the 15 min drive to Palm Cove beach and enjoy the ‘Cocktail Happy Hour 3-6pm daily’ (try a Caipirinha 43) and tapas at Vivo’s Bar & Grill Restaurant located on the beachfront and offers stunning views, you won’t be disappointed.

We met the owner, Brett who is a fabulous host and went out of his way to make our stay memorable – thanks a million Brett, we will be sharing Wanggulay Too Treetops with our family and friends.

Surrounded by water and world heritage listed rainforest, you are perfectly placed to walk the trails of the national park, canoe the Barron River Gorge, swim in natural waterfalls or simply relax on the balcony overlooking the river. Dive on the Great Barrier Reef or enjoy a sunset walk on nearby Palm Cove beach.

Being located just outside of the city, you will feel like you're staying in wilderness, yet so close to Cairns, Yorkeys Knob or Palm Cove. Access to the property is simple and once you arrive, like so many of our guests you will not want to leave. This absolute luxury hideaway blurs the line between indoors and out.

The Barron River flows from the mountains to the Coral Sea as it cuts through the rainforest in the spectacular Barron Gorge. The river widens and the current slows amongst the rocky outcrops and small clearings where families can picnic and swim in the cool water.

Nearby, the Great Barrier Reef, World Heritage rainforests, the vibrant tropical beaches of Palm Cove, Yorkeys Knob lined with coconut trees and nearby vibrant city of Cairns. Wanggulay Too is a place to relax and enjoy the tranquillity of the forest.

Here are just a couple of things you can do while staying in this Cairns City holiday house:

- Walk the marked trails of the World Heritage listed rainforest right on your doorstep.

- Explore the rock pools and waterfalls of Stoney creek.

- Walk down to the Barron river by private pathway.

- Canoe the Barron river gorge.

- Fish for famous Barramundi in the lower reaches of the Barron river.

- Dive or snorkel the Great Barrier Reef.

- Sunset walks on the beach at Palm Cove.

- Ride the world famous Skyrail over the rainforest canopy.

- Take a picnic to Crystal Cascades.

- Explore the wonderful Rusty's fresh produce markets.

- Dine out at one of the many nearby restaurants.

- Take a short drive along kilometres of unspoilt coastline to Port Douglas have lunch and explore.

- Relax on the expansive balcony or by the gentle flowing Barron river where you can take in all the delights of a holiday in the rainforest.
